In the Autumn term we learn about space and the Romans. The space topic is linked into our science work and we will explore the different planets, look at constellations and space exploration - including the International Space Station and satellites. During the Romans we will investigate the timeline of the Roman Empire, the Roman invasion of Britain, Boudicca's rebellion and what the Romans did for us today. Included in this term is a visit from the space dome and a trip to Hooke Court.
In science we are also learning about forces.
During this term we are learning about Europe and Ancient Greece. We will explore Europe through looking at both human and physical features of different European countries, comparing their cultures and customs and examining democracy at work in the European Parliament.
When learning about Ancient Greece, we will investigate the Greek gods, the Greek alphabet and how it has influenced our language today and Greek architecture. This topic will be linked to our literacy work on Greek myths and legends, in particular The Twelve Labours of Hercules
Our topic for the first half term is 'Raging Rivers'. During this half term we will learn about rivers from around the world, comparing the industries and settlements situated along the rivers.
